Sugar, Milk, Acne and hormonal fluctuation
« on: June 24, 2014, 03:18:27 AM »
As a preamble, I make the hypothesis that acne after ejaculation is a reality (you can google it ) and then it is an evidence of hormonal fluctuations we must have after orgasm.

Milk and sugary foods DO increase the risk of acne, say researchers who looked at 50 years of research

    Review of 50 years of clinical studies indicates there IS a link between diet and acne after all
    High GI diets are one culprit, as they cause peaks in blood sugar and hormonal fluctuations

t's been a subject of debate for decades, but it seems diet really does have an impact on a person's complexion.
A landmark overview of research carried out over the past 50 years has found that eating foods with a high glycaemic index (GI) and drinking milk not only aggravated acne but in some cases triggered it, too.
Millions of teenagers - and increasingly adults - are affected by the often painful skin condition which causes the skin to develop unsightly spots on the face, neck, chest and back.
    Skimmed milk in particular may also trigger outbreaks due to hormones used in processing it, say experts

Acne is caused by a combination of the skin producing too much sebum and a build-up of dead skin cells which clogs the pores and leads to a localised infection or spot.
It is thought that excess sebum production is caused by hormonal fluctuations, which explains why around 80 per cent of teenagers experience bouts of acne throughout adolescence.

While there is no danger from the spots themselves, severe acne can scar as well as lead to anxiety, low self-esteem and depression.
Since the late 19th century, research has linked diet to acne, with chocolate, sugar and fat singled out as the main culprits.
But studies carried out from the 1960s onwards have disassociated diet from the development of the condition.
Dr Jennifer Burris from the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, New York University, said: 'This change (in attitude) occurred largely because of the  two important studies that are repeatedly cited in the literature and popular culture as evidence to refute the association between diet and acne.
'More recently, dermatologists and registered dieticians have revisited the diet-acne relationship and become increasingly interested in the role of medical nutritional therapy in acne treatment.'
Eating high GI foods - foods that are absorbed into the bloodstream quickly -  is thought to have a direct effect on the severity of acne because of the hormonal fluctuations that are triggered


Quote
High GI foods cause a spike in hormone levels including insulin which is thought to instigate sebum production.
An 2007 Australian study showed that young males who were put on a strict low GI diet noticed a significant improvement in the severity of their acne.
Milk is thought to affect acne because of the hormones it contains. A 2007 study carried out by Harvard School of Public Health found that there was a clear link between those who drank milk regularly and suffered with acne.
Interestingly, those who drank skimmed milk suffered with the worst breakouts, with a 44 per cent  increase in the likelihood of developing blemishes. It is thought that processing the milk increases the levels of hormones in the drink.
The authors of the latest overview - published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics - say that dermatologists and dieticians should work together to design and conduct quality research to help the millions of acne sufferers.
'This research is necessary to fully understand the underlying mechanisms linking diet and acne,' added Dr Burris.
'The medical community should not dismiss the possibility of diet therapy as an adjunct treatment for acne. At this time, the best approach is to address each acne patient individually, carefully considering the possibility of dietary counselling.'

Yes, me too.
Just google it "acne related to ejaculation" and you will see a lot of testimonies. Statistically, it must prove the link.
Now, lot of them don't have pois. I think acne is just a sign of hormonal fluctuation in body. Even if testosterone and hormones seems stable after ejaculation, there is an activity triggered by orgasm.
And this acitvity don't work very well for us.

I even found forums where men are practicing abstinence, not for pois, but acne.

There is also this chinese study showing the link between ejaculation and abstince on a cycle of 7 days. Difficult to understand. But a part of the pois is here.

I even found a guy and here's its theory, basically (non-scientific) :

Ejaculation => loss of co-enzyme A via Testosterone => excess of fats/sebum
co-enzyme A seems to have a role inb a lot of things like fats metabolsim.

Co-enzyme A.... co-enzyme A.... I belive some guys spoke about this on the forum.
What a maze.
